Open Educational Resources at FHSU

The goals of Fort Hays State University's Open Educational Resources (OER) initiative are to reduce the cost of educational resources for students, staff, and faculty while supporting high-quality teaching, learning, and research and to increase university participation in a learning environment that values global sharing of knowledge.

To this end, FHSU maintains an OER Committee to recommend, develop, and implement strategies that increase adoption of OER resources by faculty at Fort Hays State University in lieu of commercially published resources.

The Forsyth Library also provides support for discovering, adapting, and using open educational resources, or OERs, in courses, presentations, and research. If you would like assistance with searching for and adopting open educational resources for use in the classroom, or if you have questions about Creative Commons licensing or copyright issues related to using alternative educational resources, please contact Claire Nickerson, Learning Initiatives and OER Librarian, at or (785) 628-4543.
